        Dana and family, I send you my deepest sympathy and love. I had the great blessing to meet your Dad as he took me to dinner at the beach. He was truly a gentleman and very kind. He shared about all of his children and grands as well he talked of his wife who passed and that he got the condo for her. I am sad for your loss. Blessings to all the family.

    My family, Wallace and Julia Hudnall , considered Bob as part of our family. In fact, I had him sit with our extended family at my mother’s funeral. To Greg and his siblings Karen and I extend our sympathy and empathy for your loss. He loved the Maroons and the greater Bulldog Family has lost a great supporter.
